Re: Fwd: AES FIELD TRIP SUNDAY JUNE 10 -- AZTALAN
It appears the new ceo of yahoo! is addressing upcoming upgrades for Calendar events for group sites. Currently the layout appears the same. According to the site reminder heading this may be rendered inoperable until this improvement is complete namely for active groups and group member grouplets.
The current problem with Calendar site events for one is that it doesn't allow weekly notices in advance among other issuses that isn't user friendly with limited options especially for tech groups etc which is pointless to mention within just a few days prior to an event especially if it's not online... which is why I didn't mention an Ancient America listed event some weeks ago that I didn't notice anyone even addressing at the AWS site... I would have if I'd only found out sooner myself besides AWS has no Apps or profile entries so one or two AWS members could have been within driving distance of Salt Lake City. Other than that, if we had had Apps I would have considered those few rather than fwd an email to the whole group.
Thanks for the advance notices AWS and thanks for not pasting digital map directions. As far as I know of Yahoo! Maps hasn't started any border wars!! lol
Yahoo Apps also includes a map App moderators can enable & customize for AWS grouplets aka those that make use of the site online
if we had this App already AWS members would already have the map listed for this events location. But on the other hand as well the maps App would be more user friendly if this upgrade in calendar events would be in calendar events itself. That would be nice regarding ligitament address events.
